Why Did the Chicken Cross the Möbius Strip? To get to the other side.
Caveat: nerds of the world are arguing if this joke should end with
"same side" or "other side". One point of view is that a Möbius Strip
only has one side. But if you started and experiment with fast chicken-a and
slow chicken-b on opposite sides (from a local perspective) of the same
plane, fast chicken-a would eventually catch up to slow chicken-b. Time to
test this hypothesis with an experiment: cut a strip of looped paper then
fuse it end-to-end so it is now a loop with no twist. Draw a colored line on
the inner surface of the loop. Now cut the loop, insert a twist, then close
the loop. Moving 360 degrees around the loop allows you to traverse the
surface with the colored line while another 360 degrees allows you to
traverse the surface without the colored line. I now forget why the joke was
